Well if you are looking for part 1 its here – Part 1 Buddypress and WPMU
Getting to know WordPress multi user and Buddy press
Part 1 talked about the basics features and differences between these two blogging softwares ( WORDPRESS MULTI USER AND BUDDY PRESS )as i try and get more familiar with them. i installed the wpmu and did everything right thanks to hese 2 links on You tube .
Installing WPMU or wordpress multi User tutorials on you tube
Installing WordPress MU (WPMU) Part 2 ( the guy plugs hostgator , but the tutorials arte pretty good and actually works ..pls do everything in sequence as mentioned for it to work in the first go )
So everything was installed beautifully , then i created my first blog from within the admin panel of wpmu and “SHUCKS” . it just kept giving some internal eror.
At this stage i was starting to lean towards the simple buddy press plugin that does a nice job of encouraging people to register with your site with its nice features like creating your profiles, interacting with each other on the blog , and able to post to the blog as well ( though members cant start thier own blogs on the server like you can do with WPMU )
WPMU INTERNAL EROR FIX – Solution
So with the internal eror problem appearing i did a bit of google searching and found out this file fix. Apparently if you change the .htaccess file to this it will work . Here is the link to the fix i got http://www.thepowerofk.com/blog/help/wpmu/wordpress-mu-htaccess-file-change/
This definitely fixed it and my blog was appearing now . I think it was probably something to do with my wpmu being installed in a sub directory other than the main blog and the change in the htacess file 1st line as mentioned in the link above fixed it up.
The blog is working now but it takes and awful lott of time for the subdomain blog to load up now ,,i have to figure out if its the server problem ( dre3amhost ) or then a configuration problem that is lowing it down ..more in part 3.. 🙂
